A Philosophical Essay on Probabilities
by Pierre Simon Laplace
Publisher: Chapman & Hall 1902
Number of pages: 234
This classic introduces the concepts and uses of probability theory. It demonstrates, without the use of higher mathematics, the application of probability to games of chance, physics, reliability of witnesses, astronomy, insurance, democratic government, and many other areas. It also shows how scientists can express complex ideas in simple terms.

This manuscript will help students prepare for the Probability Exam, the examination administered by the Society of Actuaries. This examination tests a student's knowledge of the fundamental probability tools for quantitatively assessing risk.
by Robert M. Gray - Springer
A self-contained treatment of the theory of probability, random processes. It is intended to lay theoretical foundations for measure and integration theory, and to develop the long term time average behavior of measurements made on random processes.
